    No Embrace

    We love without holding hands
    Sitting together with space between
    Talking of life, happiness, peace and
    The love we have for each other.

    There’s no tension of intimacy
    Need for an embrace, hug or kiss
    For in due time these things
    Will surely come to fruition.

    We are learning to love as friends
    Not allowing desire to complicate
    Our feelings of lust or lost but
    Of life and “love living”.

    I love her and she…me
    But there is no need to express
    In the physical, what our minds
    Have mastered already.

    We are building a foundation
    That true communication defines
    So that when our emotions arise today
    The physical cannot destroy tomorrow

    I’ve held her often while across the room
    With a look, a smile and subtle gesture
    To let her know that even at small distance
    She is still too far away from me

    But it is equal on both sides for she
    Will see me when I can’t see her
    And yet I still know that her heart
    Is beating in balance to mine

    She is the “heart” to my “beat”
    As I am the “pulse” to her “racing”
    Together we help each other to love
    As my “less” supports her “breath”

    I see love a different way today
    When my love is so great that
    I resist an embrace for fear that
    The strength of my love would break

    Her…

    Your words describing and feeling the love you own is very "touching",
    What your love has done to the reader!
